giving another try to a graphic tablet. I wanted to give up so many times :D… almost impossible to draw with a flowing line.

Anyway proportion seems better than drawing on a cintiq.

I’m not back with traditional medium yet but I’m trying to give up the cintiq and work with tablet.

I was used to use one 5 6 years ago, and I didn’t remember that it was this hard…

Is there anyone who got any tips/excercices to get use to it ?
Many artists do beautiful arts just with a tablet ! I’m a little bit jealous :).

Do you mind if people use your artwork as personal computer or iphone walpapers? All credit given of course :)

Hmmm I think it’s ok :D.

J'adore votre art! Um... that's all the French I know. (Une question sans rapport) est-ce que vous utilisez Manga Studio pour le PC ou Mac? J'ai trouvé que Manga Studio marche tellement lente sur le mac. En tout cas, votre art est superbe et j'ai hate de voir plus. (En passant, je m'excuse pour mon mauvais francais!)

Hello, thanks for the kind word !

I use manga studio for MAC. I only have lag when I’m on facebook and get notification or if I watch any video on internet ! I guess it’s good for me. It obliged me to close facebook and youtube this I can stay focus on my art… ahahaha…

I’ve had so many problems with my companion! I have to recalibrate or reload the drivers every other time I use it :/

Ho I have another friend who got that problem too.

Cintiq companion is definitively not a good product contrary to many review might say. If you are checking everything and very deep, you’ll see that Wacom didn’t really test their own product before launching it… like the the start button on the corner which is really not well placed…  everytime you hit it and turn of the cintiq.
They didn’t know for a moment how to make work the dual screen. and you can see it that they didn’t really care about as there is no shortcut to switch screen.
They didn’t know about jigger/lag line on photoshop … (anyway I still have this problem, feels like drawing with 1998’s PC)


It’s just like they are trying to make a computer and choosing random stuff to make it work with a cintiq…

Ok I might be wrong because I’m upset but when I looked for informations on the wacom forum… Sometimes you can clearly see that they are lost…

Agreed, I waited for a while after the companion was released to see how they actually worked like before deciding against a portable tablet and just bought a yiynova for home use (Well I didn’t buy it but you get the point).

The companion is really weirdly set up to me. They have the shortcut buttons directly from the newer intuos on one side which cuts into the screen size as well as having it dead center so you have to put your hands too low or too high to hold it. The stand is also non adjustable from what I’ve seen and tried, so you’re stuck at a drawing angle that’s probably one of the worst to hold a cintiq at because of their weird antiglare coating on the screen. Also, no case to cover all the ports on the side when you’re not using them so you easily get whatever dust and hand grease all over it when you’re working.

The jigger/lag line on photoshop I think is a straight up adobe problem. Adobe has come out before and said that photoshop isn’t meant for painting in so they won’t do fixes that benefit painters over photographers and designers. The digitizers themselves (even on the other brands) jiggle a bit when you try to do small, precise strokes so that’s just that sort of thing. 

Agreed, the anti-glare is the best bullshit ever made by wacom it blurs everything, hence it kills the eyes as I try to see it sharp, at least for me. And the scratches on screen come sooooooooooooooo fast compare to the previous version.

Mine got dust under the glass so fast… and moreover the plug of power supply doesn’t work very well, looks like a cheap plug from the 80’s.

I’m glad you’re bringing this up because I’m a leftie and have long been considering saving up for a cintiq.

Bigger cintiq works better… Cintiq 21 was fine… I have a cintiq 24 now, I don’t like it at all but I have to deal with it I guess…

I don’t have a cintiq companion, but a 13hd. Tried it, but didn’t encounter the same problem. Have you tried updating your driver? or posting on the wacom forums perhaps? D: Sorry it’s not much help.

It depends which software you are using ?? I notice that it will be in the center with MAngastudio 5 is you set the cursor to “brush size” but it change the calibration of pen. I still have this problem with photoshop, but you have to look very close as photoshop set de cursor to brush size you’ll see that le stroke is lightly off to the left. Or maybe that’s just my Cintiq…

My problem with the Cintiq companion turn for left-handed side. And I guess it does the same problem with intuos 4 and upper version.

The line is off the cursor when the cintiq is set to left-handed side. And the line is in the center of the cursor for the right-handed side.

If there anyone with a cintiq companion could you make the test too ??
sorry for my english…
well the only other option I have is to punch your tablet a few times and show him who’s boss…

Or I can show my high french skill for complaining to Wacom ! :)

oh god me too w/ the diagonal part. I thought it was because of how i have to keep my monitors since i have two… but mann even when im facing the art one dead on, i have to keep my tabby at an angle @_@

hehe well it’s easier to make verticale and horizontal that way… As the arm move naturally in diagonal when you are not facing the paper ^^….

I turn the tablet untils I get good vertical and horizontal :)

I work with the intuos 4 myself, it’s a bit wonky when it’s on left-handed mode. But I’ve noticed (for me at least) that it works way better when I place the tablet a bit diagonal.

Yes I’m working that way too ! And still way much more better on right handed mode with the tablet in diagonal :D.

i use intuos 4 and cintiq left handed, both work fine for me :o.

For a normal cintiq (22 and 24) there is no problem.
Try to make (little ) perfect circles on right handed mode and then in left handed mode with the intuos 4, you might see a difference, some people already told me they notice something different.

I’m left handed and put the orientation as express keys right. You can turn on and off the force proportions if you need…

Yes, I did all that and that’s the problem, the express keys are set on the right the coordination is different compare to express keys set to the left. And I feel more accurate when express key are on the left !

Anonymous asked:

Have you tried switching the tablet to left handed mode and then re-calibrating the screen?

A

I tried everything with the cintiq companion. It works only on right handed mode, but calibration is really bad and I have to calibrate with random until I got something correct for the right handed mode…
Ok the brush/line is juste 0.1mm off the cursor but it does matter to me as I like thing to be accurate :).
